As we welcome Father Christmas, a 2-disc compilation featuring a wealth of Motown acts has also been unleashed. Yâknow, this is like back in the day, when the company played such a pivotal part in our Festive season, particularly at parties.

With 35 songs, spanning the years, weâre treated to traditional and contemporary Christmas songs from diverse acts like The Supremes, Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, Marvin Gaye, Four Tops, Diana Ross, Smokey Robinson and the Miraces, and the Jackson 5, who exchange tracks with ânewer artistsâ like Johnny Gill, The Boys and Boyz II Men. 'What Christmas Means To Me', 'Ave Maria', 'Jingle Bells', 'Joy To The World', 'I Want To Come Home For Christmas', 'Noel' and so on. See what I mean? A huge choice.

And, last but not least, thereâs messages from stars like The Spinners, The Elgins, Four Tops, Thelma Houston and Eddie Kendricks in between the titles. What more could a gal want for Christmas? Spoil yourself. I intend to.
